"Ah, quit moping, won't you, mate?"
A voice sounded from above James' head, and he looked up quickly to see Sirius Black smirking at him from a high up branch. James yelped as Sirius jumped down, showering him with twigs.
"Nice knowing I have privacy," said James ruefully, rubbing a spot on his head where a particularly large twig had hit him.
"Honestly, Prongs, you're being right pathetic. You aren't going about it the right way, girls don't like arrogant 'toerags'," proclaimed Sirius with the air of one who had much experience in the subject.

Sirius Black sat by himself on a bench in the courtyard. He was sitting hunched over, twiddling his wand with his fingers. His book bag sat at his feet, contents spilling on the stone floor as he waited. What in Merlin's name was taking James so long?
There weren't many other people in the courtyard. Sirius found himself exceptionally bored, but James had asked him to wait there. Sirius let out a loud sigh.
He watched as Severus Snape passed through the yard, hunched over and tightly hugging his books. He walked at an awkwardly fast pace, his eyes toward the ground.
Sirius found himself annoyed at the sight of him. Why did he have to walk like that? And his books- who carried their books like that? How it irritated him so. He just wanted to smack him right in that great giant nose of his. As Snape walked by him, Sirius gave a flick of his wand, and Snape tripped and fell to the ground.
Sirius let out a loud bark of laughter. "All right, Snivelly? Better watch where you're going next ti

Since Tony was a kid, Captain America have been present in his life.
He had grew up hearing stories about him, told by his dad every night before bedtime. Howard was gesticulating vividly, eyes sparkling as he was telling tales of the brave soldier.
And Tony loved Steve, in this sincere, sweet way kids are only capable of.
When Tony was growing up the bedtime stories had stopped.
Now, Tony was running through the corridors, swinging Captain's America shield, laughing happily as Howard was running after him, pretending to be Red Skull.
When he was a teen, all Captain America merchandise was pushed into the far corner of his room.
He hated Captain America.
He hated the disapproving looks his dad always gave him each time Tony messed up something.
He hated the father-to-son talks Howard gave him, each time pinpointing Captain America as a role model.
Tony didn't understand how come his dad had all this time to talk about some fallen hero, instead

Tony leaned himself on Steve's back, looking through his shoulder. He had to stand on his toes to do that, and Steve smiled slightly feeling his husband's weight on him.
"Isn't it obvious? Chopping carrots," Steve answered calmly, not stopping his task.
"What for? I thought that we are eating out today," Tony said calmly, reaching his hand for a piece of carrot, throwing it in his mouth. Steve craned his neck to look at him.
"You think? And where would you like to eat?"
"Burger King," Tony grinned, making Steve give him a petulant look.
"Tony, he is no longer a small kid from a small town, who you can impress with taking to Burger King. Besides, that's probably what he eats all the time now, home cooked meal will be so much better," Steve explained, going back to chopping, seeing Tony snatch another piece of carrot.

That was all he needed before bounding off like a puppy, eager to please his master or in this case a girl.
During the wait he couldn’t help but to look back from time to time to make sure she was okay. Maybe it was the hero in him or the fact that he had lost so many friends and loved ones, but in a crowd like this he worried for her.

You trekked tiredly through the castle back to your and Loki's apartment. The guard let you in without question. Your eyebrows lifted as you saw a trail of red rose petals. It led to about the middle of the living room, then forked into two separate paths, one toward the hallway to the rest of the place and one toward the darkened corner of the living room. Next to the latter trail, there was a note, written in Loki's elegant hand, reading 'Follow Me First.' You smiled. This must have been part one of the surprise.

Steve was sitting on the couch, mouth hanging open. Okay, he probably looked really stupid right now. Luckily no one was around to see it. He shook his head, trying to clear it.
He just saw a commercial of Disneyland in California.
And he wanted to go there.
Okay, he was a grown up man and maybe it was embarrassing, but he wanted. Badly.
Everything seemed so colorful, people were cheerful. It was just.. Magical. Yes, it was an accurate word. Magical.
Suddenly Steve wanted nothing more than go there. And he was sure that if he would ask Tony, they go, after a lot of mocking from brunet's side, of course. But he was embarrassed to ask. Again, he was an adult. A soldier, Captain. With a heavy heart he admitted to himself that he would never see Disneyland.

Intensely decorated game booths and clowns dressed in outrageous clothes covered the grounds before his eyes with such a flare of colour that he found it difficult to differentiate between the two, high pitched squeals of delight emitted from the mouths of ecstatic children rang loudly in his ears, and the revoltingly sweet scent of buttery popcorn and sugary candy floss practically violated his nose.

He wasn't surprised when he looked at his boyfriend who already clamped hands over his mouth, and kept glaring.

A quick smile appeared on soldier face when he located the source of it - in the middle of the spacious living room was his and Tony's 5 year old son. The little boy was covered in a white sheet with cut out holes for his eyes and was waving his arms, moving the material.
Steve gasped theatrically, letting go of the newspaper to put a hand to his heart. "Tony! Tony! There is a ghost in the living room!!" he called in fake horror.

She gathered the strange Beginning-Stuff that had formed her and cast it out of herself in a shape like a bubble. She looked around the bubble and said, 'I've done something interesting. I think I'll call it Creation, after myself. But it still looks rather empty...' And so she used a fragment of her Beginning-Stuff to create a palace to live in, unlike anything that you and I have ever seen, all glittering and massive and full of strange shapes and piping music. Then, with a few more pinches of Beginning-Stuff, she made servants to look after her home and keep her company.
The Creator said, 'I'm tired. What I've made looks good enough for now.' And with that, she bundled up the rest of the Beginning-Stuff and put it in a basket, which she kept in her chambers until she was ready to use it.
Now, one of
